OVERVIEW

In-your-face onstage monitoring.

The compact, rugged, and lightweight Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor can be mounted on a mic stand (with optional adapter), set on a keyboard, amp, or table for effective up-close monitoring, or as a stage monitor with 4 different angled positions for optimum placement and versatility. The monitor is designed to reduce stage clutter and volume by putting the sound where you can most use it. The PM-200A features headphone outputs, line outputs, and external speaker outputs. The PM-200A stage monitor is also extremely versatile and can be configured in a number of ways to suit your special needs.

The PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor is the perfect tool for monitoring audio on stage or in rehearsal. This unit puts the controls at your fingertips so you'll never have to scream for "More Monitors!" again. The Nady PM-200A is tailor-made to reduce feedback while allowing vocals and instruments to stand out in the mix. Simply input a line level feed from the main or monitor mixer and adjust the EQs and Volume to your personal liking. Or you can input your instrument/vocal signal directly, before outputting to the main PA, to hear yourself solo. You'll hear yourself loud and clear and never miss the bridge again with the PM-200A monitor by your side!

I have both the non-powered Nady monitor (passive) and this powered Nady monitor (active), due to fact that I sometimes have different PA system configurations to plug into. This powered monitor is good, although it is not balanced on the stand that I use, leans in one direction and I feel it's putting pressure/strain on the plastic mount piece on the bottom of the monitor. I have used floor monitors in the past (they usually hit me around the kneecap, so I have to crank them way-up to even hear), so I am sold on the idea of using these monitors (I barely have to adjust the volume about 2, since they are placed at my ear level about 4 feet away from my head).Great idea, good unit and I've had little problems (be sure to purchase a few extra fuses, since the fuse mount is located in the back and with moving around, these fuses can get loose and fall out - I had to go on the internet to find the correct replacements, so I bought 5 and keep them in the PA bag).

Decent. The sound it alright for the price. Giving you the option to output to 2 other non-powered speakers is nice and the EQ on it can be helpful. I'll just be looking for something a little more rugged.
Being power themselves, these are nice little monitors that you can use to send a signal to a second and third monitor as well. We've used it that way in our church setup for a while now.
We have had 2 PM-200A and a PM-100 on stage at our church. Both PM-200A units have fallen off of the mic stands (even using the adapter) and broke. The first one had a cracked circuit board inside and was told it would cost as much for a new board as it would to buy a new unit. The second one fell and the input jack component broke in half, causing a wonderful buzzing noise when you plug anything into it or any other jack. These things don't seem to be made to take any kind of beating. Too fragile in my opinion.
I would say it would be a good value if it's something you aren't going to be moving around a lot. We set up and tear down each week, so I guess it was just a matter of time before one of them hit the floor, I just wish it would have been made a little stronger.

          The monitor needs a mic stand adapter, which does not come with the equipment.
          It would have been a better purchasing experience to note on the monitor description, that an extra part would be needed. No one likes those kind of surprises.

          Comments about Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor:

          One of the two 5 inch speakers blew during my first song. The system is made of particle board and is weak. The system has plenty of power and the speakers do not sound bad when they are in good condition. This unit though is not working as it should and the output to hook up extension speakers is not working. I think this is just a bad system, a fluke not representative of Nady products. If I could do it over though I would have purchased a different system!

          By Val

          from Dallas

          Comments about Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor:

          I'm a drummer in a loud rock band, and was tired of never being able to hear anything on stage, so I bought this monitor almost a year ago. I still love it! I drop the low end on the built-in EQ, and the mids and highs pierce cleanly through the stage sound so I can easily hear for vocal harmonies. I also use it at home to practice on my electronic drum kit, and to play guitar. It puts out a great sound and keeps the monitor controls right at my fingertips, so I'm not having to yell to sound guys between songs. Well worth the money! My only criticism would be that when you turn up a lot of the low end on the EQ, it does get a bit muddy and start clipping before it gets to stage volumes, so it's not great for hearing a lot of bass, but if that's not an issue for you, then I can't recommend this highly enough.

          Comments about Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor:

          We installed the Nady PM-200A to replace a Mackie SM150 at our church. The Mackie's offer multiple inputs and bill the SM150 as a "compact PA" - by comparison, the Nady PM-200A is a MONITOR.So, while you might not be able to plug-in both a microphone and a guitar and mix mutliple inputs, as far as personal stage MONITORS go, this blows the Mackie away. PLUS, this has a headphone output and allows you to use both the internal speaker AND the headphones at the same time. So, with one line-level monitor mix signal from the board, this doubles as a monitor and a headphone pre-amp for you in-ears.I'm buying another one for our keyboard player in a rock cover band for club use...As for posts commenting on system noise...it's not from these speakers. These are quiet and accurate monitors.

          Better than the pwrd Hot Spots.

          By Pablo

          from Phoenix

          See all my reviews

          Comments about Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor:

          I can't rate this as a 10 overall because it's reliability and durability has yet to be tested fully (by our band), since I've only had it a couple months (9-gigs). Those are extremely important features when the bulk of work is casual gigs. Ask me in 2-years!
          Pros: The metal spkr grill is a great touch, good protection. The 8 Ohm outputs are more standard and compatible with a wider variety of sprs. The stand mounting hole fits a Hotspot mic stand adapter better than a Hotspot...easy on, easy off. The ground loop/noise problems mentioned earlier? Nope.
          Cons: It could use a handle, especially with the outboard heat sinks. The rear mounted volume & tone controls aren't ideal, but the design allows for 2 spkrs and keeps it compact. The mic stand adapter (optional) should be included.
          The sound improvement over the pwrd Hotspot is obvious. Much more full range. Though I cut the bass a bit to bring out the vocals with the 5-piece, it's nice to know it's available on a solo or duo gig where a little gtr, keys, etc. might be desirable.. The 2-spkr design I imagine?
          Bang for the buck, the best I've used.

            I read negatives about how its not durable and how the control knobs tend to spin. But I've had this one from about 5 years and its stood up to all kinds of abuse and is just as reliable as ever. It CAN be overdriven if your send is too hot ... and the knobs tend to spin (but not once its set up for performance). I'm real happy with it. I did reinforce the speaker stand hole with some heavy plumbing hardware just so it wouldn't crack. Not a big deal.

              I've had this many years as a drummer's monitor ... I had to build a more durable base/pipe connection but once I did I gradually became impressed (bordering on awe) at how tough and durable this unit is. The control dials tend to run a little loose (spin just a bit over the course of a night) but not bad ... but it has huge headroom and some nice features.

                This is a perfect solution for me to have control of my ambient sound on stage. I set it the way I want it. It suppliments the tonal qualities I need and want that are lost on stage. Now I hear clearly what the audience hears and I don't have to guess what I hear the others playing therefore, I can be right on. The only part I am not impressed with is the plastic socket that the microphone stand that supports it fits into. I believe the unit is too heavy and a little off balance for this piece of plastic to last very long. I will make one out of metal on the lathe as a backup! Otherwise I don't want to gig without it.

                In a five piece acoustic band and using condenser type mics, spot monitors seem to work better due to feedback issues using the larger type monitors. We used this unit but was it was not hardley loud enough to hear over the instruments. Further, it quit working within one month of the warranty date. Can't handle the road. Nady offered no solution for a fix. Recommend saving money for a quality unit.

                We found that the gain on these units was so hot that we barely crack open the volume knob and have to be careful at the mixer as well. We were very disappointed trying to run one or two PM100 (passive model) from a PM200 - hardly any volume from the PM100 units. Also, the little button for the internal speaker on-off fell off one of ours. Not a big deal, but shouldn't happen. We ditched our floor wedges (and associated outboard amplifiers) and just use these now.

                I've been using a pair of these for outdoor concert stage monitors and have been totally amazed and pleased by their performance. They have all the features I need, are easy to set up and give my musicians all they need for monitors. They have plenty of power, are easy to move around if needed and I especially like how easy they are to daisy chain. I'll be buying more of these down the line.

                Comments about Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor:

                I also have a slightly more expensive Galaxy personal powered monitor which was quite loud, you could only put the volume at about 1/2 or you'd be too loud for an acoustic set, and was expecting something to match the small acoustic amp I had. Unfortunately, I am not thrilled with the Nady version. You have to crank every control to max if you want to hear yourself over a small acoustic guitar amp and even then the sound is muffled. I would recommend that someone spends a little more money to get better quality.

                I wouldn't buy this monitor unless you like poor quality

                Sound is VERY poor despite some of the rave reviews. If you prefer at least SOME low-end dynamics and SOME decent overall sound quality, don't bother with this one. I returned this thing 5 minutes after I received it. Go with a QSC K-8 instead---couple hundred more, but you won't wish you had later on.

                Using the PM-200A as a rack mounted monitor on an electric drum kit. I expected the lows to be weak but I have to push the bass EQ to its extreme to get a near full sound on the internal speakers. When it was used to drive external wedges the sound was full without pushing the EQ. Lots of power in a small unit.

                  Comments about Nady PM-200A Powered Personal Stage Monitor:

                  We recently switched from the NADY PM-100 (unpowered monitor) to wired in-ear monitors for our praise band. Unfortunately, that was not working well for one band member. We had eliminated quite a bit of stage equipment when we went to in-ears, including the amps that powered the PSM-100s. The solution was to try the PM-200A (the powered version of the PM-100). It works perfectly for us. The cable from the Behringer P16M plugs right in. Adjustment was easy and the sound is awesome!
